While I was lounging around under 90 feet of water, Flagstaff was enjoying a day of record rainfall. Let’s face it folks, it seems very rare that we have a dry Memorial Day Weekend.

Last Friday, May 22, 2009, was a record rain day for many locations.

Flagstaff          0.78" (record)
Winslow            0.46" (record)
Page               1.83"
Grand Canyon       0.95"

Page and the Grand Canyon aren’t tracked by the National Weather Service (NWS) for records. A personal weather station(KAZPAGE1) in Page, AZ recorded 3.16 inches, with a rain fall rate over 1.5 inches per hour. In Sedona, a personal weather station(KAZSEDON3) recorded over half an inch of rain on both Friday and Saturday.

The cool wet weather should be a nice break for the forests. Hopefully, the moisture will help keep the fire season to a minimum.

This week, I am going to start adding some monsoon tracking info, some new tools from the NWS and a look at the upcoming hurricane season.
